Mourinho sends a message to his lovers after Champions League progress

  • Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic in Champions League action

Manchester United were far from thrilling on Tuesday night, but they managed to beat Young Boys with a stoppage time victor from Marouane Fellaini.

Alexis Sanchez's contract, which is worth up to £500,000 a week with bonuses and image rights, has dramatically increased De Gea's prospects of earning a huge uplift on his existing £200,000 a week deal.

Meanwhile, with Jose Mourinho's side now seventh in the Premier League and trailing leaders Manchester City by 14 points, De Gea is said to be considering his long-term options.

"We created some good chances, not just half chances, and I think heads can dip when a few of those don't go in", Smalling said.

"Everybody knows I am a team player".

All Fellaini's late winners prove is that United are better off with this traditional "route one" style of play.

Rashford, though, was unable to get on the score sheet in Manchester United's 1-0 victory over the Swiss side after Marouane Fellaini netted an added-time victor.

"My players were really exhausted at the end and that's what we wanted: it means they gave everything".

"Without David [de Gea's] save, no winning goal", said Mourinho, in reference to his goalkeeper's goal line stop from Ulisses Garcia.

However, the three-time European champions are guaranteed a place in the knockout rounds thanks to Fellaini's late intervention and Juventus' 1-0 win over Valencia.

"Realistically, to be in the last 16 in this group is an achievement, not a big one, not a fantastic one, but is an achievement".

Mourinho remains under pressure to achieve Champions League football next year and an improvement in form.

That has often entailed one of their defenders launching the ball forward to Romelu Lukaku and the Belgian trying to bring his team-mates into play. Manchester United have time and again reiterated the importance of De Gea to the team and how much they want the shot-stopper to stay in Manchester. Still, it was a goal and a win, something United hadn't managed at home in Europe this season.
